The concept of degrowth becomes vivid as we watch the guatila ascend and descend the wall, clinging with its tendrils. Its understanding of the moment is revealed in its ability to retreat even after growing, manifesting a unique ability to curl up and pave the way for a more meaningful transformation. The guatila is not only a plant, but a living testament to how adaptability and flexibility can lead to continued evolution.
